There have been some killer trailers dropping recently for comic-related shows and movies. I figured I’d pop a few of them in here, to get them in one place and also to offer a bit of commentary.
The Walking Dead Season Six
This looks fantastic, especially as a fan of the comic since the beginning. Morgan’s re-introduction last season was already a significant departure from the source material, and him apparently leading a mutiny against Rick’s probable leadership of Alexandr
The Flash season finale aired over a week ago, so this might not seem like the timeliest of articles. In my defense, however, I’ve been thinking on this since the show aired. I even live-tweeted during the show, as I frequently do.
#TheFlash finale is a great example of #superhero fiction illuminating humanity. 1/2

Any parent sacrifices 4 their kids but Joe’s willing to undo 15 yrs & his own bond with Barry 4 him to have h
I’ve written before about Heroes—how much I adored the first season, how disappointing the follow-ons were in comparison–and the closer we get to the relaunch, Heroes Reborn (anyone else think the title is extremely meta, by the way?) the more hope begins to swell in my breast.
“Whosoever holds this katana, if she be worthy, shall possess the power of Hiro.”
I don’t think at all that the superhero genre on television and film is going to die any time soon (the current slates f
So, I went to see Age of Ultron on opening night, like one does. I was shocked as hell that my local theater had showings starting at 8PM on 30 April, despite opening night being advertised as 1 May. I went to the 10:15PM showing because it was after my kid went to bed (I didn’t want him to know where I was going, and keeping a 7 y/o up until 11 on a school night would have been fucked up). I didn’t get home and in bed until 1:30AM and had to get up at 6:30 for work, but it was so worth it. <
This week, Brian Michael Bendis basically lowered himself to Chuck Austen’s level on the X-Men writer totem pole, at least in my humble opinion. All-New X-Men #40 came out on Wednesday, and that’s not the only thing that came out.
Bobby Drake, is, apparently, homosexual.
Now, I shouldn’t have to say that I don’t have a problem with homosexuality, but we still live in that world, so: I don’t have a problem with homosexuality. Having said that, Bendis’ revelation regarding Icema
My love for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles knows no bounds. I’m a huge X-Men fan–the first comic I remember reading was the Heroes for Hope charity one-shot–and still remember my first issues of Superman and Punisher, but even those comics don’t stack up against the Turtles. Those properties were decades-old by the time I was born, you see, but the Turtles and I grew up alongside each other. They were conceived of when I was two years old, and hit the mainstream with a cartoon series and fi
I finished watching the first season of Daredevil on Netflix today. I could have watched it a lot faster than I did, but I really wanted to savor it–at least somewhat. I’m extremely happy not to have had to consume the show on an episode-per-week, basis. The short version is, it’s pretty much the exact opposite of the 2003 movie, and for that reason, was completely perfect.
I didn’t mind the Daredevil movie all that much when it came out–not like some people. Sure, it took some l
So, at least until WB gets it pulled from everywhere, there’s a leaked trailer for Batman v Superman. In case you haven’t seen it, here you go (UPDATE: it looks like the vid.me link has automatically updated to the actual trailer, after removing the leaked video):
Anyone who’s familiar with me or my work probably won’t be surprised to discover that I’m all sorts of hyped about this. When Man of Steel came out a couple years ago, many people were seriously ticked off that Sup
This dude? Probably had fuggin’ ADD.
A couple years ago, I wrote a semi-regular feature here on the site called The Secret Origin of Lincoln Crisler. I talked about memorable comic books, my wicked stepfather, my brushes with all sorts of religions, and some of the novels and series’ that were important to me during my formative years. It was fun to write, and it’s all still there, at the handy link I provided. I most likely could have written that column for a lot longer than I did,
The week after the season five finale, I soothed my soul by rewatching the show from episode one. After the short first season, I discovered the better way to watch Season Two. As much as I feel Season Two improved on the show’s initial effort, watching Season Three all over again did nothing to change my opinion that it’s where the show really found its legs and turned into what we love today. Season four is, in many ways, a continuation of Season Three, which might be a
